Give Virtual Box a try. There's a GPL version (although without some of the extra tools you get with a different license). It performs pretty well, and it's quite easy to use.

If you use Ubuntu, it's even in the repositories, so it's very easy to install. You might have to log out and back in again before you can use it.

There is both a free version and a pay-version with some extra features

I'm not sure about all those. My own usage patterns are pretty simple, and I don't need backups / snapshots. You can do networking.
